Vision, mission and values statements are a commonality at most private and public sector organizations. But does anyone really pay attention to them? Well, it seems the Northern Health Authority seems to think so. Because, between May 27 to July 10, staff have been invited to participate in an internal consultation process to help the authority update those statements. The reason: well, evidentally, a recent survey showed employees didn't connect with them. Quick, dial 911! The following is a complete copy of the authority's current vision, mission and values statement.
